    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    You have to pull dash apart to pop them out.
    Here's how you remove them for a 1st Gen
    It's easy though.

    1. Remove the 4 10mm bolts on the panel below your steering
    2. Remove the screw on the panel
    3. Pull off your AC knobs
    4. Pop off AC faceplate using a small flat head screwdriver
    5. Two screws, one on left..one on right where your AC controller is
    6. Pull out your change holder, remove screw behind that.
    7. Pull right below your upper vent..and the entire bezel will pop off.
    8. Next pull on your faceplate where your ignition is..will pop off
    9. Use a stubby phillips to undo the 2 bolts on your cluster bezel(they are above your cluster under the top of the dash)
    10. Pop off the bezel...disconnect hazard circuit
    11. Wiggle faceplate out..and you can see the switch pieces just 'pop' out

    Oh, shoulda read his profile information!
    That's why I hate when people don't list it as visible..or list it in the thread:frusty:


    I never mess with the 2nd Gen, father likes stock shit! So I wouldn't know anything about 2nd Gens;)
